sounding nothing

submissions wanted / soundwork about Samuel Becketts work

the starting point

straight to the point: the music possibly imagined or, the other way round, the
imagination upcoming from the possible music which is an important content in
Samuel Becketts work.
those of you acquainted with the work, or at least part of it, know or feel the
tremendous musicality coming from there.
those of you busy with electronic / electroacoustic soundwork and know
at least part of Becketts work can surely imagine what I mean.
S.Becketts non-appearing and disappearing “world” of words is – to me – an attempt to
describe us as human beings in despair, without any answer why we are, here.
take this in a philosophical way if you like.

the soundwork

taking its starting point somewhere in Becketts work and later in your way of expression
with means of sound which should contain as few words as possible or none.
the soundwork should reflect somehow the lack of words.
this means (nearly) no lyrics, if possible, or lyrics about nothing
at the end I want to compilate your works on a net CD here on modisti, if the holders
would like to make this possible.

about the upcoming works

so far I have no idea about the pieces themselves or length
the basic idea you will find above – or not.
do not try to work with something you feel uncomfortable with.


give me a word, by mail, personally, so I can check the interest.
once again: this is not a usual call for works.
still not sure what this is about ?
read some of Samuel Becketts works, the lyrics, whatever.
when you are finished some time will have passed.
maybe I hear from you later.

deadlines / questions

no deadlines so far. I want to hear from you who are triggered by the idea.
let time pass and think about it during the coming months so that I can
start putting things together after summer.
you find me at modisti, on face book or on my site
take contact when you want to.
feel free to contact people you think could be interested
